Our Young Professionals programme offers students real-world experience of working to professional briefs
Once a student is invited to work on a project they're treated as part of our Marketing team. They work with the latest technology in the Marketing department and get technical help and mentoring support where needed.
Some of the live briefs students have worked on so far include:
- New logo and website branding project for Essex Council for Voluntary Youth Services
- Newsletter re-design for Friends of Addison House
- Performing Arts dance studio photoshoot
- Editing of a video for Harlow Socialist History and Politics Group for showing in local schools and colleges
Corey, a Second Year Level 3 Media student was keen to share his experiences of working with the Marketing team as a Young Professional: "Working in this professional environment has been really helpful. It’s helped me to understand what it’s like to work with clients from both inside and outside of the College. As a Media student it’s improved my work a lot. The project is proving to be very successful so far and the plan is to roll out the initiative to many other areas across the College in the months to come."
